This technical report presents information about the sample, content, and administration of the nationally representative 2023 State of the American Teacher (SoT) survey and the American Life Panel (ALP) companion survey. The SoT was completed by 1,439 American Teacher Panel members and the ALP survey was completed by 527 ALP members in January and February 2023.
The SoT survey examined teachers' reports on several topics, including well-being (e.g., job-related stress, depression, burnout), compensation and hours worked, working conditions (e.g., mental health and well-being supports, administrator supports), teacher retention, and decisions to exit. The ALP asked similar questions, with wording appropriate to a general audience, to a nationally representative sample of employed adults in the United States. This technical report includes descriptions of survey content, survey administration, survey weighting for the SoT and ALP, and univariate descriptive tables of the SoT and ALP companion surveys.
